Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

Sorry for posting it here, but I dont think there is a bluewhite64 distro section.
I've installed Bluewhite64 and tried to compile kernel 188.8.131.52 x86_64 bits
to boot without an initrd.
My motherboard is an Abit FP-IN9 Chipset nforce 650sli.
I've checked the nvidia site, they tell me in their site the sata driver is the nv_sata
included in kernel.
My partition is EXT3
So I have marked an '*' on the following:
amd_754 (nvidia site says this is for southbridge ide nforce 430, and other models)
I've been told that I need an option marked as '*' too which is called
dev_fs or udev for booting without an initrd. But I can't find this option.
When I try to boot, I get the error VFS Error Kernel Panic, Cannot sync to partition (8,2). That is strange because I use lilo and the partition is set correct on 'root=/dev/sda2', and I wrote on MBR using the command lilo.
Any idea of what may be ?
PS: By the way, I compiled the same kernel 184.108.40.206 arch i386 on slack 12 and it worked wonderfully.
